Now, I know everyone wants the printer that Tiffany has up for grabs. However, I also would like to think that you all have found my little blog one that you'd come back to visit again. I can't believe the outpour of love from everyone. It's been like my own little blogger recognition few days. Thanks Tiffany!!

Today has been blah (other than in this online realm). It has rained all day - a gentle rain, but rain, nonetheless. The kids at daycare must have been feeling the blahs, too, because not one was on their best behavior. And then poor Moose couldn't nap there; it's too loud and he hasn't adjusted. He started to fall asleep while eating mac & cheese at lunch. He has NEVER fell asleep when there's food around; that's how tired he was. Now he's napping with his daddy. I felt so awful for him.

Last night we had a phone interview with this home for boys and girls that we've applied at to become teaching-parents. Our best friends were just hired there (you've read about it...if not, scroll back through), but it's not only that we'd like to be near them. Kids in homes like this need so much love and someone to just be there for them. We want to be there for them. Not that things here are bad and we want to move, but after a lot of deliberation and prayer and talking, it just seems so right. God will let us know if it's not right, but our interview went well (despite Moose being cranky throughout and not being able to hear very well on my stupid speakerphone). They are supposed to set up a 2nd phone interview soon. I think we'll get a sitter for that one and use Big A's phone. Ugh. But be in prayer about our jobs and moving and that all would fall under God's will and grace.
